other big story for the style, the fight for the senate. elizabeth warren and scott brown face-off again. >> i'll tell you the right way to watch the debates. you're in "the cycle" for tuesday, october 2nd. >>> we're sizing up the candidates before tomorrow's fight night in denver. "the cycle's" ringside for all the action. the weigh-in is over, and now it's time to enter the ring. in one corner, president obama "no drama" obama and in the other governor williard mitt tens romney. both are keeps expectations low but both step into the ring with plenty of debate experience in the past five years. can either deliver a knockout punch without going below the bench? do we search body punches over job plans? will romney be over the ropes for taxes, bill obama be bum rushed for specifics. will jim lair send them to certain corners. after some debate of our own, we compiled our own list of what to watch. wasn't easy. here's a glimpse into the editorial brainstorm. >> the president has a double-edged sword being the president, because he's got a lot of command of detail, he understands
trotting, what can i say? hi, willie. >> what was your initial reaction to the elizabeth warren/scott brown debate. >> scott brown fell into the trap that sometimes male politicians fall into when they debate women. he looked overbearing and angry. and you particularly can't do that when you're debating a woman candidate. i thought he was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. he's behind anyway, but now he looks mad, angry, and i think that's a -- >> okay. well, that race is fascinating. the debate was last night and we have fascinating clips of that. and also the look at preparations of the presidential debates a day away. but first, we'll start with afghanistan. nato's secretary general says there's a possibility that western forces could be withdrawn from afghanistan more quickly than previously planned. he suggested the deadly spike of insider attacks has hit the morale of former troops serving in the war zone. and today's front page of the "new york times" claims the u.s. is abandoning its hopes for a peace deal with the taliban. the "times" reports american officials are essentiall
warren's heritage has been scrutinized whether she's of native american descent. is that what an american indian is supposed to look like? careful. there is no answer. if the candidate grew up thinking she is native american by heritage, who are we to say she is not. were would we define her based on narrow constructs of race. it's because we have confusion about what race is. if she has one drop of native american blood, she is, if she doesn't she's not. but the people of massachusetts may be giving all of us an invitation to a long overdue discussion about race. at the table. msnbc contributor and the washington post jonathan capehart and victor defrancesco and jamaal simpsons and national republican consul stant katon dawson. i'm taking professorial privilege here. we need to have a conversation on race all the time. but part of it is we need a conversation on what race actually is. >> it's a social construct nevertheless. it's a concrete pillar in the society. not just in the u.s. if you look at lat inamerica. they make the u.s. look weak. they have 16 different categorizations. we ha
brown and elizabeth warren. later, a debate for the candidates for senator in nebraska. today's newspaper features a front-page article on ross perot. we travel to the office thursday to report the interview the article is based on. now this is an hour. goo [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> ross perot, i want to know how long has it been since you have been in the public 5. >> i have been in the public five about the national debt and the country and not cause problems -- in the public eye about the national debt and the country's problems. >> has it been too long since somebody like you commanded public attention so you could get the public to understand these sorts of issues? >> i am not in a good position to say that, but we need to clearly describe what has happened and what we need to do to get this under control, and right now everybody is dancing around eight as opposed to facing it. if you have cancer, the first thing you want to do is they said. we have economic cancer at this point -- i
of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates do. but i will tell you that mitt romney has been behind closed doors for much of the day today, in debate preparations, brooke, with the sparring partner, ohio senator rob portman. and perhaps the day's most notable development in the day with not very many development is that they just stopped for lunch at chipotle. they put a wrap if you don't mind the pun, on the morning debate session. i'm sorry. i had to do it. >> puns aside, before we start focusing on tomorrow night in den denver, i want to look back at romney and obama. romney, maybe appearing a little more amped up than the president in these sxmexamples. let's watch and talk on the other side. >> you have a problem with al w allowing someone to finish speaking. i suggest if you want to become president of the united states, you got to let both people speak. let me speak. >> at the time when the war started you said it would be quick and easy. you said you knew where the w
this. but the requirement under the warren act is reasonably foreseeable, and i add that senator graham is quite upset about this because this is a 60 day notice under the warren act. in 2007, according to senator graham, then senator obama wanted it to be 90 days. so now the shoe is on the other foot. he doesn't even like 60 days now. >>neil: thank you very much, greta. this just in, fox business network going all out. we told you we would be all over the election. wait until you hear what we are planning for the debates. >> we want to make sure the >> we want to make sure the teams are on the same page.

last night's debate between scott walker and elizabeth -- scott brown and elizabeth warren. it is a little early. and the winner has already pronounced to be david gregory. mitt romney's trash collector is talking. paul ryan has a hard time doing his math homework and best of all, a man with a doubly phallic name has endorsed governor romney. first, here's lisa. >> good morning everyone. it's not about whether you win or lose. it's how you play the game unless you're running for president then it is about winning but not according to mitt romney. in his version of reality where the polls are made up and the results don't matter he says the debates are about something bigger than winning. they're a chance for each candidate to present their funeral path to -- their future path to america. the president has said something very similar. his campaign said do not expect any big attacks because mr. obama just wants to continue his conversation with the american people. but romney is still prepping some zingers
-read opinion page. katrina vanden heuvel in "the washington post" writes this. elizabeth warren, the people's champion. >> i'm sorry, go ahead. go ahead. no, it's all right. i was just thinking about a joke i heard yesterday. go ahead. >> throughout the campaign, mark halperin, warren has delivered an unabashed populist message. she first made the common-sense case that no one succeeded alone. that successful businesspeople depend on what we've built together, an educated work force, roads and transport to deliver their products, a rule of law vital to working markets. this isn't a radical notion, but when adopted and badly phrased by president obama, it sparked the frenzied republican "we built it" campaign. warren will focus on the core issues and ask massachusetts voters to decide who is on their side. and if she wins, she'll not only lead a new generation of progressive reformers into the senate, but also begin to teach democrats how to fight for working people once more." mark? >> vanden heuvel, not ratner, on that. >> not ratner. >> we don't have ratner here to dispute. >> just to gam
, thank you for being with us. we have warren decker. joining us from boston, a professor alan schroeder. he has 50 -- 50 years of high risk tv. what makes a good debate and a good debater? >> i think the difference between a really good debate from my standpoint, intercollegiate debate, and debates we see at the presidential level is that a really good debate would be characterized by some depth of clash and arguments back and forth between the two. a lot of that is missing from presidential debate. the testing of ideas comes from that clash. without that clash, i think the debates to not serve quite the punch. in presidential debates, the primary function they serve is to fill in the blanks in between, give the challenger and opportunity to be on the same stage, as laura was indicating. they serve a valuable function. comparing them to the types of debates at the collegiate level is unfair, i think. >> alan schroeder, you called this a high risk television. why? >> it is a television show more than a traditional debate. a debate is the word we have used. back in 1961 they were doing th

"usa" richard walsh sat down with an interview with ross perot. c-span cameras were there to record the interview from his home and office in texas. he talked about running as a third-party candidate, dealing with the country's debt, and the u.s. education system. here is a look. >> go to our most elite engineering schools. at one time we had more talented engineer than anyone else. we were discovering everything in the world. now that has all turned around. and it is getting worse by the day. 78% of the people getting ph.d. is in our most elite engineering schools come from either china or india. ok? now, 20% come from all over the world. now i'm up to 90%. that means 2% of the people getting phd's are coming from the united states and our most elite engineering schools. that is a recipe for disaster. we
. this is the week video pops up about brown staffers taunting warren supporters. it's terrible video. if you lose those three races and you're republicans, you're not taking back the senate you may lose the senate seats. >> todd akin i don't want to win at all costs. >> both romney and obama campaigning in my home state of virginia. we have more on that with the chairman of the virginia democratic party coming up. speaking of the south, when you think hunting and nascar, you think gop, right? you might be surprised as we roll on for thursday, september 27th. hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lower cholesterol as part of a heart healthy diet. that's true. ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios ...bua thing that helps you wbuy other things.hing. but plenty of companies do that. so we make something else. we help make life a little easier, more convenient, more rewarding, more entertaining. year after year. it's the reason why we don't have customers. we have members. american express. welcome in. when i think of aspirin, i really think of it as that bottle in the

was a bill by senator pat warren who happens to be a democrat here in omaha. i chose his for my party bill. it puts in place here in nebraska a process whereby a citizen can challenge a rule or regulation to make sure it meets legislative intent. so i have always been concerned about rules and regulations. we need to look at something like that of the federal level. we need to use a committee process at the federal level. one senator is not going to be a to make all these changes on their own. but if you use a committee process and look at those rules and regulations that have a certain economic impact, that is a good way to start. here in nebraska we look at the dust. we have all heard about the farm dust and how really ridiculous that rule was. sen. kerrey mention the emissions of our public power plant that is of deep concern because in nebraska, we're so fortunate we have public power and lower electric rates. it helps us all as consumers, but also helps us to draw businesses to our state, to grow businesses. it is an advantage to come to nebraska because of those rates. you grow jobs
happen. >> i completely agree. we've had jokes hit the white house before. warren harding might not be able to get the white house with 24 hour news cycles, the more cameras on the candidates, the harder for i imbecile's to get there. >> anything can happen that isn't handled perfectly. as we saw in 2007 or 2008, that can be a game-changer. in a race this close even on the national level i think we need to be mindful of that. if anything, it should be getting us up earlier us getting more coffee to walk those precincts and explain how important it is to vote and make sure everybody has the proper identification to get in there and cast their ballots. if you were worried about mitt romney and now taking solace in the fact that he is now behind in the poles you need to get off your couch. >> every time they said he has it wrapped up, 10 more people stay home. >> he's going to be gone in four years. do you want a great crop of candidates governorships across the country that can take his place when it's time? you need to think about this. republicans spend a lot of effort filling t
senate races we have been unable to fact check. we have a elizabeth warren and some of the claims there in the massachusetts race. we have not had the staff. >> i think your question want to e-mail sent by the campaign staff. we have a section devoted to viral e-mail and some of this stuff is amazingly delusional and we can't resist going after it. we signed up for and get the mails they send to their supporters. bass -- they tend to be the same messages over and over again that sometimes we have a bunk. sometimes they go over the top. we got one from the romney campaign -- i don't know what they were thinking, after the fed stood there and ben bernanke held a news conference saying they're going to go through another round of quantitative easing, printing money. the message to donors was this -- the "barack obama is at it again, spending your tax dollars per "two things about that -- the fed is reducing the deficit and making huge profits returning record amounts of money to the treasury as a result of all their previous quantitative easing. so the opposite of spending your tax d
